Pianist Alon Goldstein is joined by American chamber music ensemble the Fine Arts Quartet and special guest Rachel Calin on double bass for the world premiere recordings of these chamber versions of two of Mozart’s greatest and most popular piano concertos. To make the two concertos more accessible to the public, 19th century composer Ignaz Lachner left the piano parts untouched and wrote splendid string quartet transcriptions of the orchestra parts with added bass. These versions sound almost as natural as if Mozart had transcribed them himself.

This album was mastered using the 2xHD proprietary system. In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording the process is tailored specifically for each project, using a selection of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original 24bits/96kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converter. The analog signal is then sent though a hi-end tube pre-aplifier before being recorded directly in DSD 5.6mHz using the Merging Horus/Hapi In and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.

Each format (96kHz, 192kHz, DSD2.8mHz and DSD5.6mHz) was created using Merfing Horus/Hapi A/D converter, calibrated to the required format, and a dCS Vivaldi clock.
